Police Arrests 33-year-old Cultist Involved In Killing Of 60 Persons In Ogun

An alleged 33-year-old cultist, Femi Kuti, has confessed to have participated in the killing of over 50 people in Ijebu area of Ogun State.

The Ogun State Police Command made this known while parading the suspect at the headquarters of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, located along Presidential Boulevard, Abeokuta.

Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, said the suspect, an indigene of Okuku, Odo-Otin Local Government Area of Osun State, was expelled from the Tai Solarin College of Education (now TASUED), Ijagun, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State some years back.

He added that, he was arrested on Monday, October 6, at a spot opposite the Ijebu Ode Local Government Secretariat at about 8.30pm.

The Police boss recalled that Kuti was in the midst of about 100 other cultists and hence, the police met a heavy resistance that led to exchange of fire.

Okoye said the suspected cultist was fatally injured by police bullets before he was eventually taken away by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

“The suspect who has been terrorizing the state for some years now has confessed to many killings in the state,” he said.

“He confessed to have killed more than 10 people while he has participated, with his gang, in the killing of more than 50 people in Ijebu Area and Ogun State in general.”

“The serial killer had been arrested by the police on several occasions and was sentenced to imprisonment.

“But he’s so recalcitrant and continued his dirty business of assassination and robbery after his jail terms. He is assisting the police in its investigations and will soon be charged to court.”
